Param Pujya Yugpurush Mahamandaleshwar Swami Paramananda Giriji MaharajPujya Acharya Mahamandaleshwar Yugpurush Swami Parmananda Giriji Maharaj, even though born in the backward area of Uttar Pradesh (India), in the village of Mawai, District Fathehpur, had been oriented towards renunciation since childhood. In 1956, Swami Parmanandaji Maharaj received his "Sanyas deeksha" from the Revered Swami Akhanandanandji Maharaj. Swami Parmanandaji Maharaj had just finished high school at that time and at such a young age, under the supervision of his guru, he attained the gracious state of self realization.
Swami Parmanandaji Maharaj entered the society as a karmayogi, after attaining the experience of purity under his revered teacher, his primary objective being that of welfare. Swamiji found his solace in Kundalini Yoga, where he experienced transcendental consciousness.
By various methods of meditation and Kundalini Jagran, Revered Swamiji transmits transcendental consciousness among the seekers of truth which leads them towards the stage of self-realization. The most powerful stream (words) of Vedanta (Upanishads) flow continuously from his mouth throughout the year. He calls for an end to the self-defeating tendency to worry and explains the ways in which the mind and heart can be made to bloom.
Swami Parmanandaji Maharaj is considered one of the most effective orators of his times. His conceptual grasp of the ancient texts are extremely clear and he discusses the Vedantas with a veracity that allows even laymen to feel convinced about the underlying messages and teachings. His fame has crossed the boundaries and he has been invited to the United Nations to speak at the 1st Millennium World Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual leaders on August 28-31, 2000. In 2001 and 2002, he visited a number of places in USA and enlightened a large number of devotees and seekers.
Today, under the patronage of Swami Parmanandaji Maharaj, many projects are being undertaken to help the society.
